Biography


DOUGLAS FOUNTAIN
Wah-lee-tah-kah   Won-cha

Fountain’s impressive body of work includes totems, masks, sculptures, his continuing energy series and the circles of life series.
Fountain creates museum quality pieces of art, which are conceived on the legends and proud traditions of his people.

Trained as an architectural engineer and then as professional photographer, Fountain believes he was called to his creative work to elevate the awareness of tradition in the culture of the Native American Indians to their universal love and respect for the Earth and all its elements.
Fountain credits his success and the enormous interest in work to his firm belief in positive affirmations, a genuine belief in himself and his joy in creating his work.

“May my work bring enjoyment and happiness into your home and heart”
